Financial Accounting and Advisory Services (FAAS) Projects - Agile Talent Community
What is the Agile Talent Community?
The Agile Talent Community is a network of contract professionals given the opportunity to work with our clients on a project-by-project basis and provided with strong support and development opportunities offered by Grant Thornton. You'll get the freedom and advice to work in a way that suits you, that is compliant, and be able to choose the projects you take on, allowing you the independence to manage your time more effectively. The Agile Talent Community will reflect the same values that sit at the heart of Grant Thornton: a commitment to diversity and inclusion, a client centric, quality driven ethos and a fundamental care for our people and doing what's right, ahead of what's easy.
Our ambition is that we are fully inclusive every day. This means that our working environment is one where everyone's experience is important. Where people are treated fairly, and everyone has equal access to opportunities and where everyone feels safe to be themselves. We want to create a culture where it's okay to ask questions and to understand more about different perspectives, so that we continuously educate and inform each other.
